Bento Books is a publishing company specializing in translations of Japanese fiction.

Bento Books was founded to bring contemporary Japanese fiction to new audiences with an emphasis on titles overlooked by traditional publishers. Japan is a cultural juggernaut, yet the vast majority of its novels and manga remain inaccessible to the English-speaking world. We believe that with an excellent translation, many of these hidden gems could thrive in the West.
